Railway Postal Ciekks. An
item to the effect that no postal cards
or letters can be mailed on trains has
lately been going the rounds of the
newspapers, and notwithstanding a
contrary statement has been published
and republished, an impression has
been made that the railway postal ser
vice will not recognize such mail.
Clerks on the various roads have been
plied with endless quest ions since the
above report was started. The result
is that tho Superintendent of the
Eighth Division of tlia postal service,
San Francisco, has incorporated the
following section in general 'order Xo.
14(1, just received by Chief Clerk Hen
ry: "All chief clerks will ascertain if
possible, the name of any and of all
piistal clerks who have refused to re
ceive mail matter at their mail ears.
There seems to be an impression among
clerks on some lines that an order has
been issued to the c licet that mail mat
ter should not be received at the ears
tor mailing. Any information relat
ing to the source from whence such re
presentations came will be thankfully
received, that it may be properly treat
ed to the end that the service may not
! sutler by such reports." It is unneces
sary to state that no such order was
ever issued, and that mail will be re
ceived on board trains the same as it al
ways was. The sooner this becomes

Most dairymen prefer the tempera

The milch cow is simply a machine

there are in the food, the better milk
the cow will give.
